The five-time IPL trophy winners Mumbai Indians are looking at mixed results in their 16th season. Apart from the team, captain Rohit Sharma is also struggling to score double figures. Meanwhile, Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of the Indian team, has given a message to Rohit. He believes Rohit’s workload has doubled over the years, which has also affected his leadership as runs have not flowed from his bat.
Rohit Sharma was not able to perform particularly in the previous season as well. His team Mumbai Indians (Mumbai Indians) was last in the points table with 4 wins after playing only 14 matches. A similar situation is seen this time too. As expected from him, runs are not pouring from Rohit’s bat. The Mumbai team is currently at the sixth position in the points table of the IPL 2023 (IPL 2023) tournament with 10 points.
Statement by Ravi Shastri
Ravi Shastri admitted that Rohit’s lack of performance with the bat has affected his leadership. He said, “If you are scoring runs, your job as a captain becomes much easier. Gestures on the field change. When you’re not scoring runs, the energy on the field is different. No matter who you are, you cannot escape disappointment.”
Shastri further said, “This is the place where your performance as a captain is very important. However, the season is not yet over for Rohit. If he gets in form from here on out, it will be easier for the team and for him.”
Rohit’s performance of the season
Captain Rohit Sharma is not doing well in IPL 2023. Because, he has scored 184 runs in 10 matches at an average of 18.39. His strike rate is 126.89. In this, he has also been dismissed twice. Thus he also became the highest wicket-taker in IPL history with 16 wickets. (former cricketer ravi shastri message to rohit sharma on poor form in ipl 2023)
